Silicon Valley gets its first trailer

C++. Python. Java. PHP. Thankfully, you won't need to understand any of these languages to enjoy the latest geek comedy from HBO.

Fresh from the irreverent mind of Mike Judge (Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill, Office Space) comes Silicon Valley, a comedy inspired by the creator's stint as an engineer in the tech capital of the USA.

Following the creation of a rather nifty compression algorithm (we don't know what that is either), Thomas (Thomas Middleditch) sets out to make his fortunes in the innovation-rich Silicon Valley. Immediately struck by the challenge of selling his idea or building his own company, the following trailer is filled with scathing tech critiques and geek giggles. Big Bang Theory it ain't.

Silicon Valley airs in the US on 6 April, with a UK release yet to be announced
